Jeans for teens: take off your pants for a good cause

GIANNA CABRAL , Staff Writer

Student council is trying to collect jeans for teens who are in need, and they need your help. Bring in any new or lightly used jeans to help GHS reach its goal of 200 pairs.

GHS was Inspired by a similar drive at Haverhill High School, which was featured on the news for collecting over 200 pairs of jeans,

Collected jeans will be donated to local people in need.

“It is a very easy charitable way to pay it forward,” said student council and NHS adviser Rayanne Menery.

Whether they are teen or adult jeans, all sizes are welcome. If your parents have pairs of jeans they want to get rid of, you can bring them in. If you have a pair that is tucked away in the corner of your room or in a bag in your basement, bring those in too.

Faculty members are also encouraged to support the cause.

“I think it’s a good idea,” said student council and NHS member Hannah Zuidema. “I’d like to think that a lot of kids will bring in jeans to help reach the goal of 200 pairs.”

If you have a pair of jeans, drop them off this month in Mrs. Menery’s room 1213.
